At the moment I'm working with Year 9 Drama and Year 7 English, but I've been puzzling about how to best use podcasts since last year. Each year quite a few students have made digital recordings when offered assignment choice - not really podcasts as they don't produce them for a regular broadcast. We can save these on our internal servers or on a class wiki. What I'd like to do is to collect and save broadcast podcasts but I've not worked out the best way to organise this. I'd love some ideas about how others are managing vod and podcasts as part of their library collection.
I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
